Tour of Your Doll World

I had an idea. Vanessa from Van's Doll Treasures suggested that I do a video of my house move/doll reorganization project.

Okay I'm not a Christian or a housewife but I am a sucker for super conservative Christian stay at home mommy blogs! The ones that bake their own bread and make kefir and home school their kids? Love them!

Here's an example. This is Candy. Poor thing is always disappearing from the blogosphere because she gets really harassed and stalked. Her perfection really pisses people off. Her insane organization and natural cleaning products have changed my household for life.

Anyway if you look on the left frame she encourages the other Christian Homemaker bloggers to do a tour of their homes. I'm come from a tribe of home-lookers. We want to view homes even if we're not looking for a home. We're dreamers. So I love this feature.

So what if we do this? Not our homes but our doll spaces. Would you guys join me?

The house is not definite yet (it is in my heart), but even WHEN everything goes through it won't be for another 2 weeks. I'll do a post then and ask you to do it as well. I think I'll do a Before and an After. I'll show you how I *cough* organize my doll world. Hey look, I said I love to organize. I didn't tell you I had the capacity to STAY organized. Because I don't.

So whaddya think? Will you be joining me? Will you give me permission to put the link on my blog like Candy?

  1. Hahahaha..not gonna happen on my end. I have a loooooonnnnnng way to go before I get a doll space. I hope to get it partly done while I'm at home but NO VIDEO, PICTURES are coming from me other than the mess on my page. Love ya like a play cousin but this mess will not be televised.

    I will watch yours and are you sure this Candy is for real? No disrespect but even the mighty MS had to admit she was getting help :O)

  2. hahah! You are killin' me! Who is the mighty MS? I appreciate your honesty! I did see your doll space the other day. No judgment!

    I think Candy has a moment by moment breakdown of what she does all day. I want so much to believe it!

  3. Martha Stewart is the might MS..LOL. I only mean that in my disorder of non-organization that those who can do this have my utmost respect. I aspire to be at a happy medium of organization. I was following the Fly Lady who had me start with 15 mins and get the time higher everytime to organize and clean your spaces.

    I'm thankful I'm not a hoarder and can let things go. I may post a pic or 2 of my progress. That before and after is a beautiful thing :O)

  4. Dani, darling, I suggested you do it, so those of us who don't get the same thrill from organizing that you do, could perhaps benefit from your joy of doing it. I never said that we would be doing it. Technically, my doll space is not that bad. If I could just figure out how to organize my fabrics in a way that I could still have easy access to them, I would be almost completely organized. My other doll area, my basement, needs to be cleaned and rearranged. My friend had to keep some house stuff down there for the past 7 months or so. They were just retrieved last week, so I can get that space back in order. But if I take time out to organize those 2 spaces so they can be filmed, that will take away from my videos, my furniture, and delay the opening of my food store. Ummmm, not going to happen. Great idea though. I hope you get some takers. That would be really nice to see. Thanks for the shout out!

Doll Dyeing

So I had this BJD friend with this sad doll that I just fell in love with.  I knew they had issues bonding and I knew that baby had to be mine. I told her to let me know if she ever wanted to sell. She didn't do that but listed her anyway. (I thought we were cool, man.)  I was very lucky that the first person who wanted her stepped aside.  I thought if I lost this girl I would have a breakdown.

You see, she was very special.  She had a history.  Here's what I can gather:  she was purchased by this shady ass dude in the hobby. Everyone knows he is shady. 
So he hired a faceup artist to paint the face and give her scarring. He never explained that he wanted raised scars, not gashes in the resin.  I've seen the proof that she wrote up the agreement for this guy and the work was just GORGEOUS.

He claims she damaged it. Whatever.  So apparently there were attempts from this guy to sell her with no luck and he eventually gave it away and my doll acquaintance won her.  She dyed h…

Re-introducing Aniata and her Diorama

Hello Doll Peeps!

I have loads of new items for sale so click on the shopping ladies on the right. Most of the first tier stuff is gone so lots of discounted stuff!

When we last spoke, my doll was named Kala. I had posted her in the BJD Addicts group and a few people remarked that she looked like a Taino. My family is Haitian and my husband's is Puerto Rican, the Tainos lived in both. I thought this was fortuitous. So I emailed my aunt, a fan of the Taino and told her about the doll and that I needed a new name. Kala was always supposed to be temporary and I feared it was taking hold.

She said, "I feel like her name is Aniata." And I knew it was right. It's hard to get the tongue around but if you just pronounce the T softly, like in Anita, then it's much more natural.

Anyway introducing Aniata!  (Doll nudity ahead.)



I've been working on the hut like crazy since the last post. While I waited for paint and glue to dry, I made Aniata stuff. I made her necklace…

An Official Farewell

Hi Guys,

I don't know if you're still reading this but I'm officially taking this blog offline. It was so fun to be part of the 1/6th scale doll community and on Facebook at least, I still am. But I feel like the BJD community is mostly on other platforms.

I'll always be at vitaplastica.com and you can reach me at the gmail of the same name.  Hey, I may even start a blog over on the site, so who knows?

Here's a picture of nearly all my doll family (missing Doll Chateau Alma, who doesn't have a face up yet, and an Impldoll Martin head.)


EDIT: Blogger will STILL not let me comment. haha.  Anyway, due to the very positive response, I will not take this blog down. I remember how heartbroken I was that Smidgehouse didn't leave hers up. So I'll keep this here forever, okay?

I might even post a link to any blog posts on my website. See you...always!


It's be great collecting and growing with you!

smooches,
dani
